18 year old Beth from Stockport can sleep for up to 22 hours a day and when awake is child like and confused. She has a rare neurological disorder called Kleine Levin Syndrome, nicknamed Sleeping Beauty syndrome.

Beth says: "I'm missing my life, I can't live my life as a teenager. My friends are going travelling and college. My life is on hold."

In a moving interview, BBC Radio Manchester's Sam Walker talks to Beth and her mum Janine about daily life with KLS.
